BMC YCS – Round 3 at The Castle

squad1

 

On the 29th March our Performance Squad had the regional final of the BMC Youth Climbing Series. Again our team did amazingly well with two regional champions and two second places, first time round for the White Spider Squad!

The 'fantastic 4' will be off to compete in the Grand Final at the Edinburgh International Climbing Arena in Ratho. 

 

squad

 

So what's it like to compete?

 

spider

We asked our original and super strong 'Spider Baby', Christopher Butcher, to tell us what it was like competing in the regional final at The Castle climbing centre. This is what he said. 

 

'It was the big day! The final round of the BMC Youth regional competition.  The top 5 from London South region would compete against the top 5 from London North in their age group at The Castle.  White Spider had 10 squad members competing.

 

 

As we approached from the tube station, I realized how big it was. It really does look like a castle from the outside, and inside the walls are higher than most of us had climbed before.  We couldn’t help feeling nervous as we waited for our turn to boulder and top-rope or lead (for the older age groups), especially as we realised the standard of the other climbers there. But the whole squad have been training hard and we knew that we had it in us to climb well and do White Spider proud.  The climbs were hard and set to test our full strength, agility and skills.  It was a tough competition for all of us.

 

 

After a long day climbing, we waited for the results to be announced.  There was an air of anticipation; a top 3 placing meant a place at the BMC finals in Edinburgh in June!  Libby won Girls A, Immy Girls B and Beth placed 2nd in Girls D And me?  A 2nd place in Boys D meant that I will be joining the 3 girls on a trip to Edinburgh, climbing at Europe’s biggest indoor climbing arena, Ratho.  Where the walls will be even higher!  Well done to all the other squad members who climbed well and only just missed out on finals places.  And a big thanks to our awesome coaches Belinda, Bronagh and Andre and to all the White Spider staff who’ve supported and encouraged us throughout.  So if you see us training hard at White Spider, you’ll know what we are training for.  Wish us all the best for June!

WS Junior Squad member. Aged 10.'

 

We also had an amazing result with one of our regular kids club members, Tomasz Kolasinki, he came 3rd at The Castle which means he is also off to Ratho! Well done Tom!

 

A massive well done! We're all so proud!
